Dead of winter

class=img_thumbleft>Local theater troupe

Live Action Set

, the group behind this year's most-attended Fringe Festival show,

Please Don't Blow Up Mr. Boban

, is in search of participants for its

Zombies on Ice

performance, which will take place on Medicine Lake in Plymouth as one of this year's many

Art Shanty Projects

. The first show is January 13 at 3:00 p.m., and 50 to 100 participants are still needed to fill the roles of zombies, make-up artists, and zombie team leaders.

Those interested need not be skilled at playing the undead on a frozen body of water: Galen Treuer of Live Action Set says the only thing you need is an ability to "propel across the ice in a jerky, zombie-like manner," and the desire to have your frozen and snot-encrusted face "made up in the gruesome style of violent decay." Of course, a love of blood-red icicles dripping from your numbed little nose doesn't hurt anything, either. Anyone desiring to play the winter dead should contact Treur at gtreuer[at]
